BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

Basically wondering what FileSystems BOS will support and which languages for programming. Also BOS should have a VM like VMM386 but obviously more up to date. this could allow for better support in running cross-platform binaries such as gcc and therefore take away the need to immediately create ports of such applications. I know all of these Ideas are far out there at the moment but I've personally tried your code and It is Su-Feckin-Perb and I think It could easily overtake linux which frankly is someones Idea of a joke now linus tovalais himself has gone over to the mac. Anyway keep up the good work

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

BOS first supported filesystem should be FAT12, and of course it will support other popular filesystems
later. Maybe even have it's own.
Even if BOS is programmed in assembly, I plan to support most languages that could be
ported without much trubble.
My knowlege about VM's is limited, and I can't find much info on it.
Maybe someone could tell me more about it?

Anyway, thanks for your comments.

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

I plan to port at least a C and a Pascal compiler.

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

Maybe you could start ( when the time will come ) porting tinycc over gcc ... then maybe you'll be able to compile GCC with tinycc smile

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

Yeah maybe, I don't know excatly... Want the simplest possible C compiler, and i would prefer one with normal asm syntax.. tongue
My main goal right now is to implement "free", I finished a working alloc and a command to show where mem is taken or not yesterday. big_smile

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

TinyCC is written in C and a bit of ASM, is the smallest C compiler I saw around IMHO...

Re: BOS IDEAS FROM THE THINKTANK

As TinyCC isn't as simple as I thought, it might be simpleC or B-flat instead.
